|tvei11 - Second Thought - Small Black Box - Second Thought|
Small Black Box is an experiment in texture through both sampling and synthesis.

All tracks written, produced, sampled and performed by Ross Baker.

|tvei09 - Madam Bovary - Before the End Something is Coming to an End - Madam Bovary|

|tvei08 - Como - Przemysł Sztuczki - Como|
Como is Kraków, Poland-based Jovánec Lotr. While ordinarily a jazz musician, his Como moniker reveals a style more geared toward lo-fi bedroom experimentation. Przemysł Sztuczki is a relatively short EP for which the concept was to complete a different track over the course of one day. Without any other specified unifying ideas there is left a good amount of room for stylistic manoeuvre, resulting in an appealingly diverse, gapless progression from the appropriately-titled Szef Metal's resona...

|tvei04 - Perfect Writing - Perfect Land - Perfect Writing|
Perfect Writing is an electronic project of Mike Waters, who also works as Model Warships (see below) and in a number of other groups. The Perfect Land EP is guided by rich - but restrained - synth arrangements that drift over and about their partnered elements in light, poignant, emotive settings. Those who liked the playfully wistful side of early instrumental múm or Stars of the Lid's slow-motion architecture should find a number of things to enjoy throughout this unhurried, melodic release.
